Jamie Lee Curtis turns 50. AARP put her on the cover and sends out a press release saying she will be “topless” on the cover of their next magazine. (Thanks Gretchen.)
Of course she’s NOT topless, so why the hype?
CNN blares she “takes shirt off for magazine.”
“I want to be older,” she tells the magazine. “I actually think there’s an incredible amount of self-knowledge that comes with getting older. I feel way better now than I did when I was 20. I’m stronger, I’m smarter in every way, I’m so much less crazy than I was then.”
I can’t wait to see the cover and see how much she is photoshopped. If I don’t see some moles, freckles, age spots, wrinkles on her chest – that’s cheating. She’s the person that got a lot of publicity showing how photoshopping is taking over magazine shoots.
But she dropped a bunch of weight and is feeling better about herself. Which is OK by me. But shut up about it.
She brags that she has let her hair go gray. BFD – it goes gray and then she has her personal stylist add highlights.
“If I get the chance, I would like to evolve as a public voice, to find a way to talk about making better choices. It is very difficult to talk about people’s personal choices, and the addiction to having what we want when we want it.”
So look for her to come out with a book, then a TV talker. After all Boomers don’t have enough beautiful women speaking out about how wonderful aging is.
I’m glad us guys don’t have to put up with that crap.
